One of the Detroit Tigers' top priorities this offseason is to acquire a left-handed reliever, although they are unlikely to pursue free-agent RP Andrew Miller (Orioles). According to general manager Dave Dombrowski, they could convert one of their young left-handed starters (such as Kyle Lobstein, Robbie Ray or Kyle Ryan) into a reliever or look within the organization for help, although it is more likely that they will sign a free agent.

The Detroit Tigers will promote SP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo to start Tuesday, Aug. 12, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Fantasy Tip: The team is shuffling its rotation thanks to injuries to Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander. Ray has seen time at the big-league level before, but he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if you need an emergency fantasy replacement.

The Detroit Tigers have placed SP Anibal Sanchez (side) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right pectoralis major strain. The move is retroactive to Saturday, Aug. 9, and he could miss three to four weeks. Sanchez suffered the injury during his start against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Aug. 8, and was forced to leave the game in the fifth inning due to a strained muscle in his right side. The Tigers will recall SP Robbie Ray to start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Aug. 13, in place of Sanchez.
Fantasy Tip: Ray does not have much fantasy value except as a desperation streaming option.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) left the game early Friday, Aug. 8, because of a right pectoral strain. He will be reevaluated Saturday, Aug. 9.
Fantasy Tip: There appears to be a good chance that Sanchez will need to go on the 15-day disabled list because of the injury. The team could consider recalling Drew VerHagen or Robbie Ray from the minor leagues if Sanchez is sidelined. Both are probably only options in AL-only leagues.

Detroit Tigers SP Robbie Ray was expected to get the call-up from Triple-A Toledo to start Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, but he has allowed 12 earned runs over his past two starts. General manager Dave Dombrowski said Rays is continuing to work on his breaking ball and said it is "a little messed up mechanically." SP Drew VerHagen will be called up instead.
